Why content marketing?
The days of producing reams of low-quality content stuffed with keywords and backlinks have all but come to an end. Search engines now focus on returning results to their users that will be relevant and engaging to them. People have also grown weary of aggressive promotion and become numb to it.
This is where content marketing comes in. Rather than give the hard sell and push the call to action, it is all about giving your readers useful content without the pressure. This may seem counter-intuitive, but it helps build your brand image and authority and fosters trust. It won't replace traditional advertising's ability to generate quick sales, but over the long term, it can generate a significant return for a small investment.
Of course, your material should show good use of the English language, but it must also serve a purpose. You want your visitors to enjoy your content or find it useful enough to share it with their friends. Internet users are bombarded by endless content, but much doesn't even meet basic standards and is instantly dismissed, so you need to offer something better.
We can help you with your content marketing needs beyond just the generation of content. Any good content marketing campaign needs to start with a documented strategy and the identification of target personas. This need not cost a fortune either, because you could experiment with a blog or newsfeed to add some dynamism to an otherwise static web page.
